Come Thou Fount of Every Blessing is a Christian hymn written by the 18th century pastor and hymnist Robert Robinson. Robert Robinson penned the words at age 22 in the year 1757[1]. The words of the hymn are in the public domain.”

Below is the version sung by the Mormon Tabernacle Choir in the YouTube Video above.

1. Come, Thou Fount of every blessing,
Tune my heart to sing Thy grace;
Streams of mercy, never ceasing,
Call for songs of loudest praise.
Teach me some melodious sonnet,
Sung by flaming tongues above.
Praise the mount! I’m fixed upon it,
Mount of Thy redeeming love.

2. Here I raise my Ebenezer;
Hither by Thy help I’ve come;
And I hope, by Thy good pleasure,
Safely to arrive at home.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it;
Seal it for Thy courts above.

3. Jesus sought me when a stranger,
Wandering from the fold of God;
He, to rescue me from danger,
Interposed His precious blood.
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it;
Seal it for Thy courts above.

4. O to grace how great a debtor
Daily I’m constrained to be!
Let Thy goodness, like a fetter,
Bind my wandering heart to Thee:
Prone to wander, Lord, I feel it,
Prone to leave the God I love;
Here’s my heart, O take and seal it;
Seal it for Thy courts above.

    Wonderful Doc! 🙂

    I think the singing that we partake in, in Heaven, will be like this. 🙂

  • Hi David,

    You are absolutely right! When Jeannette and I were in Tonga, I used to say (whenever I heard Tongans singing in 7-part harmony, a capella): “When Tongans sing, the angels sing with them.” One person finally asked (knowing I am not very musical): “How do you know the angels sing with them?” My simple reply was, “I can hear them.”

    Blessings and Gratitudes,
